Rendering of the new Fire Station 24 in Wheeling

Excerpts from the

Wheeling trustees unanimously approved construction for Fire Station 42 to be rebuilt at 135 McHenry Rd. with a maximum price tag of $7,699,244. Village officials say they have saved the money to make this happen, and would not need the support of taxpayers by referendum or lenders. Wheeling has been saving funds for this since 2019. Based on call volume and call location studies, the village needed to have two stations on the west side of the railroad tracks.

The project was introduced with a budget goal of $5 million, but flood detention fix costs exceeded the $5 million, prompting a higher expected cost. Construction on the 10,700 sq. ft. building should to break ground this spring and take a year to complete.

The new station will be substantially the same as Fire Station 23 at 780 S. Wheeling Rd. Since 2009, the current Station 42 has been shared with the Wheeling Police Department on Dundee Road. It was meant to be a temporary solution. 

thanks Andy
